Corrupt politics is a moral issue

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

Politics are the people’s business. And when politics becomes corrupt, it becomes a moral issue.

Some boring credits: Greedy people become greedy public servants; corrupt actions of public servants corrupt.

When we receive corrupt stuff from politicians in the name of re-election, it becomes a moral issue. Watch out, here comes the truth. If the church will not unite in favor of proper moral issues then there is no point in searching for term limits for all elected leaders.

Should the church be in favor of proper conduct of our elected leaders by mandatory two-term limits. With other proper credentials, would you favor a candidate who promises self-imposed term limits or should we go for the gusto with a national referendum on term limits?

I feel church invovlvement in this issue is paramount. I am confounded that they are not. The church is vocal on issues of abortion , however with little effect. By support of term limits, the church will be heard.

Matthew 23:37 — “Jerusalem, you who kill prophets .. you will not listen.”

The church settles for half measures on issues of abortion — Jerusalem!, Jerusalem!

Tom Rogers Sr.

Should abortion be legal for victims of rape?

No. That baby is alive, no matter how horrible its manner of conception.
Yes. It's wrong to force a woman to carry the child of her rapist.
Abortion is a private matter and should be legal for everyone.
